The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has allocated 2.8 billion baht for major maintenance work on the northern line between Uttaradit and Chiang Mai in the wake of 13 derailments so far this year.
Passengers walk away from a derailed Bangkok-Chiang Mai overnight express train in Phrae's Den Chai district on July 17.
SRT governor Prapat Chongsanguan said services between the two provinces would be suspended from Sept 16 to Oct 31 while the maintenance is done. The SRT will provide buses to take passengers from Sila-art station in Uttaradit to destinations in Chiang Mai.
